Dear Brothers & Sisters,As-Salaamu-Alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh. (May Allah's Peace, Mercy and Blessings be upon all of you)
In the suburb where I live there is a Masjid that belongs to Sufis and another smaller Masjid belongs to them as well. Is it permissible to pray in it?.
(There may be some grammatical and spelling errors in the above statement. The forum does not change anything from questions, comments and statements received from our readers for circulation in confidentiality.)
Praise be to Allaah.
Do not pray with these Sufis in their zawiyahs, and beware of keeping company with them and mixing with them, lest you be affected by what has affected them. Try to pray in the mosque of a congregation who seek to follow the Sunnah and are keen to do so.
And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.
